The Bengals will play a home game in London against the Washington Redskins during the upcoming 2016 season. Some fans aren't terribly happy about it for various reasons, but others are just excited to see the Bengals get a chance to perform on an international stage.
If you are part of the latter group, you'll be happy to know we now have information on ticket packages for the game. It won't be cheap. On top of the expenses involved with traveling to London, packages for the game start at $1,915.00 for upper level tickets. These PrimeSport ticket packages are the official hospitality and fan travel packages for the game. Each package also brings the added benefit of pre-game party admission, a team rally, Bengals pub party admission, a sightseeing tour of London, and great hotel reservations.
If you were hoping to get lower level seats, the package will cost $2,575. It will also bring the added benefit of admission to the River Thames Dinner Cruise as well as an extra night in London. Sideline level seats will cost $2,775.00 but will also give you V.I.P. access to the pre-game party.
Should you be lucky enough to procure one of these packages, the pre-game party is definitely not something you're going to want to miss. For those buying the least expensive deluxe package as well as the middle-price premium package, you will have general access to a party hosted by Bengals alumni including pre-game analysis, a full bar, a brunch buffet, a photo booth, and much more. Those who shell out for the most expensive ultimate package will enjoy the same party, but with V.I.P access.
All three packages include a three to four night stay at the London Hilton on Park Lane. The game is on October 30, but buyers of the deluxe package will have reservations at the hotel from Friday, October 28 to Monday, October 31. The hotel is situated in the most exciting part of London, overlooking Hyde Park and within walking distance to Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Shopping Scene, and Piccadilly Circus. Those who buy the premium or ultimate package will be treated to an extra day of fun in London, checking in on Thursday, October 27.
These packages may be purchased with or without having already bought tickets to the game. However, if you have already bought your tickets without a travel package, the cost of the tickets can be deducted from each package so you don't have to shell out for extra tickets you may not need. Packages are on sale now at primesport.com, so if you're planning on partaking in the festivities, make sure you lock down your trip now!
